2023 priority goals:

#1 represent the citizens HD22 needs:

  1. Strengthen state’s rights against the federal government overreach. As I study the USA and Montana Constitutions I’m finding ways to give the state back its original intended power over federal government. This will make our state sovereign,unique and sustain our Montana values.
  2. Lowering future taxes and returning tax surplus back to the citizens who pay taxes to the Montana Department of Revenue. Taxes are the citizens’ money being paid to government only because its concept is “we need government services and involvement”. When those requirements are met and there’s a surplus, like right now $1.8 billion, that money needs to be returned to the tax payers and tax percentages need to be reevaluated. Not creating new programs that’ll NEVER go away. With more money in YOUR pockets, you have the ability to live a life of freedom and independence, getting government OUT of your life instead of more entrenched.

  3. Session committees:
    2017 Judiciary, Education, Ag
    Law and Justice Interim
    2019 Tax, Health and Human Services
    Local Government Interim
    2021 Tax, Health and Human Services (vice-chair)
    State Tribal Relations Interim

I’ve attended over 23 tours and trainings. To name a few: energy resources, child protective services, tribal issues, Women’s health, county jails & state prison system, taxes and international trade.

I work hard, return phone calls (usually by text messages) and attend any meeting or training that will enhance my ability to better represent the citizens of HD22 and Montana statewide.

I have had the privilege and honor to be on, and I am a better person today because of this journey. Thank you for your continued support. As your representative this upcoming 68th session in Helena, I’ll continue to listen, learn and lead us to a brighter future in Great Falls, Cascade County and Montana. I ask for your vote November 8th.
